Yes, it is a great game. It was hard to figure out the puzzles like: the drums in Nahele Rain, the puzzle in the pond in Hyaku Lake, 2 puzzles in The Desert of Naar and of course the puzzles in The Steps of Akasha.

An other one I liked very much is Quern, Undying Thoughts; Lake Ridden; The Eyes of Ara; The Painscreek Killings; Obduction; RoonSehv; ASA and Catyph.
In a little bit different genre: The House of Da Vinci; The Room 1 + 2.

And of course a couple of older games: Reah, Amerzone, all the Myst-games and there are more but I can't play them on W-10.
I probally have forgotten a lot of other games.

Thank you, Lion, for the info on similar games. I am downloading a demo of The Painscreek Killings from Steam, will also try Lake Ridden. I have played the other games you recommend and agree totally about Xing. My only problem was for some reason I wasn't able to see the ice pillars, the developers released a patch to remedy this but it didn't work on my system. Managed to nearly complete the game by drawing diagrams, but I had to watch the Steps of Akasha on Youtube. Too many ice pillars!! wave2

I also saw the videowalkthrough on Youtube but they never explain the puzzles and aften are not complete.
Did you finish the game? It took me a while to figure out the puzzles in the Steps of Akasha.

Did you see our English walkthrough for this game, alot of screenshots and an explanation for the puzzles.

I got a tip from Louis for another good game: The Talos Principle.

I also down loaded The Painscreek Killings from Steam but am unable to "use" the items in inventory - it's grayed out. Is there something I'm missing in the initial loading or setup of the game or could this be a bug.

I'm wondering if Upsydaisy had the same problem.

NOTE: I found the problem. I had to click on the lock in order to be able to use the key. Sorry for the quick post.

Another game with some interesting puzzles is The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The graphics are also spectacular, but it does need a fairly hefty video card.

I recently - about six months ago - bought a new PC so luckily I've been able to play games like
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. You're right it was a very good game and well done.

In fact, I have played most of the games Lion_1251 mentioned but there a few I haven't so I'll be checking
them out.

I finished most of The Witness (if you can say that about a game) but never did complete the famous
(or infamous) timed puzzle - which I may go back to some day. I really enjoyed most of that game but
got frustrated with that one part and I still have difficulty understanding at what point is the game
truly finished - but then that's just me.

Quern and Obduction were two other games I enjoyed playing. Actually since I stopped using BigFish on a
regular basis I've been able to get back to adventure games - which began with my very first one - Myst.

Same here, Robert! Just lost my taste for Big Fish Games and am back to more adventure games.

Hi remelone, found the same issue as you, but realised that you have to click on things to get the 'use'. I didn't finish the demo as got a bad dose of motion sickness with this one. I was fine until I started looking around the town. sick sick Lake Ridden looks the better option.

Yes Upsydaisy you may find Lake Ridden to be a little better in the motion department except it seems today
most games - at least the ones I played recently - require a lot of back and forth, up and down activity.

It's hard to say if a game is going to be a "motion" problem until you try it - unless you're able to look at a preview
on YouTube or somewhere else that might give you an idea what to expect.

I thought Lake Ridden was unique in its own way. Enjoy.

Robert
